This five-hour class offers a hands-on introduction to fermentation, distillation, and barrel-aging of a small-batch whiskey. Attendees will participate in every aspect of production as well as learn how various factors such as grain choice, enzyme and yeast usage, distillation technique, and barrel aging affect the final whiskey product.
Students will collaborate with New Deal owner and master distiller Tom Burkleaux and leave the class with a working knowledge of craft whiskey production as well as vouchers for two bottles of whiskey. Each student’s whiskey can be brought home as an unaged “white dog” whiskey to be used in their favorite cocktails or barreled in a baby barrel to complete the aging process to their own taste.
